Reviews about The Winner of the Slow Bicycle Race: The Satirical Writings of Paul Krassner (3):
Burgas
As an old neophyte in social order philosophy, the idea of already being the winner of the slow bicycle race because the mass psychology of speed as the balancing mechanism when learning to ride a bicycle is maintained by a vast host of workers in brain treatment by cranking doses that skewer creative subjectivity of emotional responses to rocks off in the cycles of political play freak hysteria makes dying young the Jack London of the eldritch hundred years since peckerwood Wilson had his winning streak.

The tree of knowledge had an absurd branch with Camus and Walter Kaufmann troubles as thinking became existential separation from power regimentation for stupidity. I could see intellectual death wish sweepstakes issues piling up like the frog pile up picture in the paint-by-numbers frog lip leap review I wrote with an art of tiny top over big frog appreciation. Jack London was inviting readers to have weird anniversary celebrations of Novenber 22, 1916, when he kept us out of war was just, was just about, was just about to roll wholly holy over.

Radical in the Sixties, radical since, radical today. Krassner is one of those rare specimens - a Sixties radical who survived with his sense of humour intact. It's easy to see why. He doesn't take himself seriously, he realises the essentially futile (but essential) nature of trying to change society, and he is instinctively anti-authority.

This book consists of a collection of short stories from various points in Krassner's life - from the nineties to the fifties and all points in between. It's irreverent, sometimes infuriating (sometimes you just want him to talk straight and seperate facts from hyperbole), and thoroughly entertaining and informative.

Krassner hung out with all the cool cats, and he's probably the only one still around to tell the tale. He'd be the first to accuse himself of escaping the wrath on account of his role as a CIA deep cover agent.

Highly recommended for people interested in 'what happened in the Sixties', mind-expanding drugs or radical American politics.
